We have stayed here three times now, in 2007, 2011 and 2015 and it's a very solid performer and great value for Port Douglas. The apartments are the way to go over the hotel rooms. Whilst they might need a slight interior spruce up in the next few years, they still look pretty good currently with modern couches and stainless... More

The hallway really needs a face-lift, and smelly. Our room had a broken soap holder in the shower, which was replaced when i told them. There was mould in the shower base, which hasn't been cleaned in a long time. The hairdryer was also broken, which was also replaced. The location is great and the staff were really friendly, i...

The main reason I selected this accommodation was that it is a quality resort within easy walking distance to everything, and I was not disappointed! I could not see the sense in staying in a noisy main street resort or one further out that requires taxis to get around. The staff were great (hi Shelby!) and eager to please, with... More

Arrived late so reception closed. Followed instructions at front door and accessed key to room and instructions for car parking. Living area / kitchen was spacious and had a foldaway bed in sofa. Good decoration and nicely furnished. Bedroom was comfortable with shower room off of it. The room was clean, well equipped and everything worked- including the hot tub... More

This was our first visit to Port Douglas and the Mantra Aqueous was sensational both in terms of its location and the service. Starting with the Manager, Matt Knight, all staff were exceptional and nothing was ever a problem. The venue was great and the swim out pool accommodation was the way to go. So close to everything. Would definitely... More

We have stayed here 4 times over the last few years and this accommodation is most satisfying for the location and price, I do however think that it is looking old and tired, time for an upgrade, new paint, towels (pool and bathroom) need replacing etc and perhaps more time spent on maintaining this property. The manager is the best... More
